Telemetry Receiver by UDP+KV-GPB

In the article, only show as follow (because easy to show how to work):

Protocol: UDP; Port: 5234

Encoding: KV-GPB

For more detailed information, you can reference my colleague’s GitHub, which includes more examples, e.g GRPC.

GRPC Update Info:

If use GRPC not TCP/UDP, that will have standard function, you will not need to write “DECODE_FN_MAP…”, function will auto generate, direct to use. Simple list steps:

  1. Get GRPC protobuf (e.g “mdt_grpc_dialout”) from cisco / bigmuddy-network-telemetry-proto
  2. Install/use compile tools, suggest install python virtual env, you can reference 在MacOS中部署Python虚拟开发环境

How to Import Global Route in IXIA

Thanks @JianJian‘s sharing how to import global route in IXIA. The article have two part, 1st part was done by IxNetwork original way. 2nd part will done by IXNetwork Scenario (later updste).

Before import, we must have global route table file, we can download from follow lnik:



Two issues for IxNetwork when set eBGP by Scenario

Ixia updates NexGen framework in IxNetwork, that is great function and help tester simplified workload, but looks like the function couldn’t completely automate,  e.g when you config local address, GW address couldn’t auto-generate, you must manually change that, that should ok, everybody should fix that~ 🙂  But some issue will waste your time to troubleshooting. Summary two issues for the article that will help you fast to fix similar issues.

My IxNetwork version is 7.40.929.28.GA, GA version, wish to fix those issues at MR version 🙂

MALFORM update error on NCS5500



MPLS over GRE on NCS5500

For the artical, will summary how to mpls over gre on NCS5500, NCS5500 only enable decap mode of GRE(6.1.x support the feature), that feature will flexible terminal GRE session that from DC servers. Btw, in order to verify packets from the tester, will capture packets by ERSPAN on NCS55A1.


  • NCS55A1-2 learn eBGP route from tester 5/2
  • Ony IPv4/IGP forwarding from Terster 5/1 -> 55A1-1 -> 55A1-2
  • Send traffics(GRE + EPE ) from tester 5/1, and terminate at NCS55A1-2, then forward to EPE link



New install NSO and Connect with XR by CLI/Netconf NED

Not update any NSO article to my blog, I will put more NSO info to here, wish that will help more guys. The article will include more hands-on experiences, help beginner fast connect xr devices with nso by cli or netconf ned. For netcong NED, build by Pioneer at former, that need to manual exclude the Yang file that no support. In the article, will build netconf ned by native tool of NSO 5.2.0.
